TGIFF - Canned Pineapples

Last month, I tested a new pattern for Andrea @ 3rd Story Workshop.  The pattern, Canned Pineapples, is a mix of paper piecing and embroidery.

Instead of finishing with an embroidery hoop, I decided to do a little bit of quilting.  It finishes at 12.5 inches.

I couldn't resist a trip to my local grocery store for a photo shoot with the pineapples. 😊

I had a sample of Hobbs Tuscany Supreme 100% Cotton batting, which was the perfect size.  It's a wonderful batting.  I would definitely use it again.  I used Gutermann cotton #5322 to a little free motion quilting (stars and loops) just to hold the layers together.

I did a faced binding using a tutorial by Carole Lyles Shaw.

Make sure you get your Canned Pineapples pattern while it's on sale.  Andrea has some embroidery videos on her blog, as well as tips for choosing colours and embellishing the hoop.
